While he's now a family man — he's reportedly thinking of selling his cars to fund his kids' future education — he still indulges himself once in a while. On October 5, he posted a photo of his Rolex on Instagram. And it’s not just any Rolex, mind you. The actor’s 18-karat gold Cosmograph Daytona Paul Newman "John Player Special" is so sought-after that it sold for £1.215mil (S$2.1mil) at a recent Sotheby’s auction in London. This particular model is known to be one of the rarest in the Daytona configurations, and according to Sotheby’s, there are only 10 of it in existence.
